Frenchen Up Your Spring Routine!

After the cold and harsh days of winter, it's time to say goodbye to dry, rough and dull skin…with key skin secrets to French up your skin. 

Secret #1 - Exfoliate, Exfoliate & Exfoliate more

Prep your skin first. Get rid of the old dead skin cells that are keeping fresh air and nutrients from reaching the deeper layers.

Be sure to use gentle scrubs to remove the dead cells, not the healthy ones:)

For sensitive skin, Topicrem Gentle scrub face and body, a soap-free, paraben-free gel enriched with jojoba microbeads.

And get your own spa treatment at home with a detoxifying clay facemask that will keep your pores clean and tight with Caudalie Instant Detox Mask. A formula that sounds just like a feast for a King … or a Queen: Papaya Enzymes, Pink Clay and Coffee, Grape Marc, Lavender, Cypress, Sage, and Sandalwood Essential Oils.

Filorga Scrub and Mask is also the perfect combination of science and cosmetics with some essential ingredients for a dual-action mask to reveal a cleaner and fresher looking skin thanks to a mechanical & biological with protease and oxygen transportation system.

Secret #2 - Clean smart

Once the dead cells are gone, it’s time to nurture the healthy ones. Pick a body wash that is right for your skin type. If you need advice, contact our team of experts at BeautyBuddy. They will help you choose from a range of products and brands that are right for you: From Topicrem Gentle Cleansing Milk or Topicrem Gentle cleansing Gel to Bioderma Sensibio Foaming Gel.

Topicrem’s products have been specially developed for dry and sensitive skin for the entire family.

The cleansing Milk, thanks to its beeswax and glycerin enriched formula, cleans and hydrates the skin, which becomes flexible and comfortable. 

The Gentle Cleansing Gel from Topicrem is specially formulated as a sensitive and dry skin cleanser for the whole family. Its soap-free cleansing base gently washes the body and hair. It preserves the skin barrier.

Sensibio Foaming Gel, from Bioderma is enriched with Coco Glucoside: an active ingredient that mimics the skin structure. Mild and soothing, this product is designed to help you easily remove excess oil and restore radiance to your skin.

Secret #3 - Seal with Skin Oil

At any time of the year but particularly during the colder months, help your skin to keep the moisture in. How to do that? Easy! Right after you turn off the water from your shower or you get out of your bath, apply skin friendly oil that seals in the body wash you’ve just used before.

Feel your skin being enveloped with a subtle floral sun-kissed fragrance with woody notes with Caudalie Divine Oil. This product definitely deserves its name. It is divine multi-use dry oil with exceptional blends of oils: grape, hibiscus, sesame and, of course, argan, combined with Caudalie patented anti-oxidant Polyphenols. Perfect combination of technology, science and cosmetic!

Patyka Huile Absolue is another completely natural skin booster oil containing twelve essential oils and plant extracts with regenerating antioxidant, healing and astringent properties.

Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse nourishes and beautifies the face, body and hair.

Secret #4 - Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize! 

When not hydrated enough, the skin becomes more sensitive and dull. The secret for beautiful glowing skin is hydration!

You always need to apply more moisture to your skin to support rehydration. You will say “good-bye” to croc skin and “hello” to skin soft as silk.

Topicrem Ultra Moisturizing Serum offers intense 24-hour hydration. Bio-Active Water stimulates hydration flows through the skin and optimizes cells renewal.

Caudalie Moisturizing Mask brings quenching hydration to dry skin while soothing any redness or irritation. It strengthens skin to retain more moisture over time. Grape seed oil prevents future dehydration. Ideal for even the most sensitive skin.

Secret #5 - Drink water—Hydration inside out!

This is one of the ultimate pieces of beauty advice. Your body is made up of 50 to 65% water and it is essential to replenish that capital. Water helps clear up your skin. We are all supposed to drink at least 8 glass of water to maintain hydration in our bodies, which includes the skin. The more hydrated you are, the brighter and healthier is your skin.

Secret #6 - Soak—Hydration outside in!

To add to the hydration piece, kick things up a notch with a warm bath. Soaking in a bath allows your pores to drown in moisture rich elements. Once that done, go back to #4 to moisturize your skin while your pores are still open and ready to absorb nutrient to have your skin even more hydrated.

Secret #7 - Sun?? Yes with protection :)

Spring comes and the first rays of sunshine feel so good on your skin. Yes… BUT

You also need to protect your skin from the unwanted effects of the sun, wearing hats, scarves, and sunglasses… and sunscreen.

You can finish your routine with Embryolisse Smooth Radiant Complexionnourishing facial care with SPF30 to protect your skin from sun damage.

And if you still feel tightness or irritation after a day outdoor, use Bioderma Cicabio Cream, a moisturizing and soothing cream that helps repair your skin at every regeneration stage.

Secret #8 - Lips Like Sugar

And, last but not least, don’t forget your lips! They need to be taking care of as well with the warm days coming up.

Topicrem Ultra-Moisturizing Lip Balm nourishes intensely, moisturizes, protects and repairs dry and damaged lips.

Lucious lips secret, Nuxe Ultra-Nourishing Lip Balm. The balm nourishes and repairs the lips, leaving them soft, supple and plump.

Voilà, your skin will be ready, hydrated, beautiful and healthy to enjoy the return of spring.
